Overview

Alysse is a Midwest plus size fashion blogger, LGBTQ influencer, writer, designer, and professional speaker based in Cleveland, Ohio. Growing up, she was inspired by her business savvy mother and drawn to gender studies and fashion. After leaving Ohio, she made her way to the big city, Chicago. For the first time, she met other queer people like her. On the outside, her style displayed a strong confident woman but underneath that was a timid personality wanting love. Then one day while crossing a busy intersection something happened that would forever change her life. From that moment on she would realize that she was capable of anything!
